For more ‪‬effective SEO, use only one <H1> tag per page.

‬‬Alternative text describes your images so they can appear in Google™ Images search results.

Text/HTML Ratio

Medium impact Hard to solve

5.5%

?

This page's ratio of text to HTML code is below 15 percent, this means that your website probably needs more text content.

A ratio between 25 and 70 percent is ideal. When it goes beyond that, the page might run the risk of being considered spam.

As long as the ‪‬‬content is relevant and gives essential information, it is a plus to have more of it.

Write additional content with more keywords

Indexed Pages

Medium impact Hard to solve
1,466,855    1,466,855
?

This is the number of pages on your website that are indexed by search engines. The more pages that are indexed, the better, as this offers more opportunity for your website to be found.

A low number (relative to the total number of pages/URLs on your website) probably indicates that your internal link architecture needs improvement and is preventing search engines from crawling all of the pages on your website. You might want to create/check your site's XML sitemap and submit it to the major search engines. You must also build backlinks to your site's internal pages to help search bots crawl and index your web pages.

Check Google™ Webmaster Tools under Health and Index Status, to keep track of the status of your site's indexed pages.

Write more content

WWW Resolve

Medium impact Easy to solve

This website with and without www redirects to the same page.

?

Great, your website directs www.nieuwsblad.be and nieuwsblad.be to the same URL.

Redirecting requests from a non-preferred domain is important because search engines consider URLs with and without "www" as two different websites.

Redirect non-www to www

IP Canonicalization

Low impact Easy to solve

Yes

?

Good, your website's IP address is forwarding to your website's domain name.

To check this for your website, enter your IP address in the browser and see if your site loads with the IP address. Ideally, the IP should redirect to your website's URL or to a page from your website hosting provider.

If it does not redirect, you should do an htaccess 301 redirect to make sure the IP does not get indexed.

Robots.txt

Medium impact Easy to solve
?

Great, your website has a robots.txt file.

A robots.txt file allows you to restrict the access of search engine robots that crawl the web and it can prevent these robots from accessing specific directories and pages. It also specifies where the XML sitemap file is located.

Click here to check your robots.txt file for syntax errors.

Add a robots.txt file

XML Sitemap

Low impact Easy to solve

Missing

?

Your website does not have an XML sitemap - this can be problematic.

A sitemap lists URLs that are available for crawling and can include additional information like your site's latest updates, frequency of changes and importance of the URLs. This allows search engines to crawl the site more intelligently.

We recommend that you generate an XML sitemap for your website and submit it to both Google™ Webmaster Tools and Bing Webmaster Tools. It is also good practice to specify your sitemap's location in your robots.txt file.

Add and Optimize your XML sitemap

URL Rewrite

Low impact Hard to solve

Perfect, your URLs look clean.

?

Great! You have clean (user-friendly) URLs which do not contain query strings.
Clean URLs are not only SEO-friendly but are also important for usability.

Rewrite your URLs and clean them up.

Underscores in the URLs

Low impact Hard to solve

We found underscores in this URL and/or in your in-page URLs.
